Interaction of porcine conventional dendritic cells with swine influenza virus.

Swine influenza virus (SwIV) causes sub-acute or acute respiratory infections on swine farms and pigs can act as "mixing vessels" for new influenza strains. Knowledge of the immune response of SwIV in its natural host, pigs, is very limited. Dendritic cells (DCs) mediate the induction of immunity to pathogens, but their interaction with SwIV has not been… CONTINUE READING
